The 7 most awkward moments from Trump's Israel trip

After mentioning threats to Israel from Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran, he said, "not with Donald J. Trump", drawing enthusiastic applause. The goal of Trump's trip, the official said, was "to do a lot of listening, build very strong relationships with all the different people, not just the parties involved, . and try to create a lot of momentum and optimism around the prospect for peace". "Mr. President, I extend my hand to you to be your partner in this noble mission". He checked out the Western Wall, Yad Vashem and the Israel Museum, and he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Mr Abbas reiterated his call for a two-state solution to the conflict, including a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, insisting that "our problem is not with the Jewish religion, it's with the occupation and settlements, and with Israel not recognising the state of Palestine". Trump's impromptu reference to his Russian Intelligence leak "I never mentioned Israel" was baffling.

The manifesto stated, according to Ma'an, that the party was committed to a two-state solution to solve the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict, adding that "there can be no military solution to this conflict" and that both Israel and Palestine must "avoid taking action that would make peace harder to achieve", referencing the need to end the decade-long Israeli siege, the half-century Israeli occupation of the West Bank, and Israel's continued settlement expansions. Trump first visited Saudi Arabia where he called on Muslims to combat extremism, and from Israel he will head to Rome where he will meet Pope Francis. And to follow their dreams, right here. The measures included extending the operating hours of the Allenby Bridge border crossing between the West Bank and Jordan, expanding a West Bank industrial zone and allowing Palestinian construction in areas of the West Bank under full Israeli control. On the contrary, it will push it forward by correcting a historical injustice and ending the Palestinian narrative that says that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Both sides will face tough decisions.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers. His Fatah faction, the legacy of master-terrorist Yasser Arafat, sports its own terrorist wing (the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade). No one knows, Reuters reports, except maybe for special envoy Jared Kushner, and he's not talking. Netanyahu also criticized this practice in a statement made after Abbas's joint remarks with Trump on Tuesday, seemingly calling Abbas a hypocrite for offering his condolences to those who were hurt or lost loved ones in Monday evening's terrorist attacks in Manchester - Netanyahu said that had the Manchester victims been Israeli children, the Palestinian Authority would have paid the attacker's family.

Real survive early Atletico onslaught to reach final
Simeone was loudly cheered. "He has also been a long-term player and sometimes it is important to feel what the player thinks". It was the final European game at the Calderon before Atletico moves into a new venue next season.

The assignment would pose daunting challenges for the most seasoned diplomat, much less a novice. Like him or loathe him, Trump delivered a message of hope, albeit devoid of substance, and has brought some sense of possibility back to the Israeli-Palestinian relationship.

When it comes to the Middle East peace, the devil is in the details, and Trump steadfastly refused to provide any during his visit. However, Trump prides himself on his ability to make the best deals, and to succeed in dealmaking where all others fail.

Most Israelis had to go to work. It's not even really that much of a risk to his reputation.

Trump was moved when he was given the notebook of a young woman who died in the Holocaust.

The meeting of Trump with Mahmoud Abbas did not offer any breakthroughs. Or Mir-a-Lago. Whatever's the classiest. While this does not necessarily exclude the possibility of normalizing relations with Iran's other, more geographically close allies, it may well encourage the Trump White House and other influential policymakers to vigorously pursue a strategy of cooperation with the Arab states against Iran. In a live stream of Trump's remarks with Netanyahu on Monday, the White House listed the meeting's location as "Jerusalem, Israel".
